• How did you feel when you participated in mathematics lessons in school? Is there a specific incident that springs to mind, or one that highlights any specific emotions you felt?

• When you think about your own learning of mathematics, do you observe this as learning several different topics, or as a way of thinking? How does this relate back to your understanding of mathematics and numeracy?

• Do you feel your experience of learning mathematics has framed the way in which you see yourself as a teacher?

• Why is it important to recognise that not all students come to school with positive feelings towards mathematics?

• What strategies can teachers enact to enhance positive feelings towards maths? Relate this back to your understanding of mathematics and numeracy.
